Harry Reid and Jon Kyl’s political fight to legalise online poker in America received a boost recently thanks to an official declaration of support from Nevada Governor, Brian Sandoval.
A rising star amongst the ranks of Republicans, Sandoval wrote in a letter to leaders of congress that he offers his “full support” to the pair’s efforts. Having had a hand in gambling before, as the former chairman of the Nevada Gaming Commission, Sandoval believes that state rights can be maintained under a new federal law that would legalise online poker. Indeed, according to his letter, player protection and state authority are his major concerns and he feels the Reid/Kyl bill addresses these things perfectly: “As Congress considers legislation to address the uncertainty surrounding Internet gaming, I offer my full support to the efforts by Sens. Harry Reid and John Kyl [sic] to draft a federal bill that strikes a balance between consumer protection and maintaining state authority.”Whether or not this new support from inside the political world will help further the chances of the bill remains to be seen, but there’s little doubt that continuing pressure from an ever-growing number of people will eventually see the re-introduction of online poker to the US.
